We are delighted to announce that Amelia Standing (L6SB) (pictured left below) and Wilf Le Brocq (U6KS) have been selected for the GB team for the Junior European Rowing Championships for the Coupe de la Jeunesse this weekend!
Great Britain will send a full team to Hazewinkel, Belgium, to contest the 2017 Coupe de la Jeunesse, hoping to repeat the strong performance that saw them comfortably win last year.
Under-18 rowers from across England and Scotland will take to the water in the two-day competition, which sees 12 European countries come together to battle it out over 13 events on each day.
GB topped the leaderboard in Poznan last year, winning an incredible 15 gold medals, seven silvers and two bronzes to finish 82 points ahead of Italy in the table – the biggest winning margin ever at the event.
We have very high hopes for our two amazing rowers, Amelia and Wilf, who have already enjoyed a fantastic season with many impressive performances. We wish them and the whole GB squad the very best of luck!
